Typical Florida local food and beverage joint. Music in the evenings. Good food and drink. Try the fried green tomatoes.

The service at the inside bar is a crap shoot. Depends what day, what time, and who's there. The service at the outside bar is more consistant and tends to be better, but everyone smokes outside so you gotta deal with it. The service at...More

Description
Mike and Brian started at the Port of Indecision. for those of you who dont know where that is, it's about three Marlintini's southeast of Disorder. While Mike studied life at sea, Brian studied life at bars. Neither able to pass their SAT's our fathers said stay in school - don't be a fool. But we had to see what life was all about. So we've come to the town of Sutherland seeking fame and fortune. We've got a catchy name. We might say Good Day, we might call you Darlin',but most of all we thank you! Thirsty Marlin.
